Boosters trying to help football team bottom line

The Nevada Union varsity football team put on an excellent show of sportsmanship and tenacity recently at Hooper Stadium. Even while losing by multiple touchdowns, they never gave up. They played their hearts out until the final second. These are the kind of young people that make me hopeful for the future of our community.

The NU Football Boosters were there trying to raise funds for a cash-poor program by handing out free coffee or hot chocolate to anyone buying an NU travel mug. I was told that, for some reason, the NU athletic director stepped in and put a stop to this effort. Really?

Editor’s note: Nevada Union High School officials say there has been an agreement that food and drink sales are not to be part of the boosters merchandise sales on game night, in order not to compete with the student body association, which handles concession sales.
